My toes are LIKE fingers enough already (Morten's toe) and so the build of VFFs doesn't work for me.
I liked them for a few days, and then suddenly they started pulling hard on my pinky toe and rubbing off the toenail - Basically VFFs are awesome if you make sure that they fit you perfectly. Otherwise they can hurt.
I have a pair of Merrel True Gloves I like - but I've replaced those with some NB Minimus that I do like. They aren't the zero drop, but they have held up to over a hundred miles of trail running in the 5 months I've had them.
I hope to get a pair of Altra Adam's or Sampson's soon so I've got more options! Good luck!
